Our God is an Awesome God: Pray for Pastor Youcef

According to Amnesty International and Nadarkhani’s legal team, the Iranian government had offered leniency if he were to recant his Christianity. His lawyer Mohammad Ali Dadkhah stated that an appeals court upheld his sentence after he refused to renounce his Christian faith and reconvert to Islam

In early September 2012, Nadarkhani was acquitted of apostasy, but found guilty of evangelizing Muslims, though he was immediately released as having served prison time

Our God is an awesome God

He reigns from Heaven above

With wisdom power and love

Our God is an awesome God

Wise Men Still Seek Him

Beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shining a-far through shadows dim
Giving the light for those who long have gone
Guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star the hope of life
Guiding the pilgrims through the night
Over the mountains ’til the break of dawn
Into the land of perfect day
It will give out a lovely ray
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star the hope of grace
For the redeemed, the good and the blessed
Yonder in glory when the crown is won
Jesus is now the star divine
Brighter and brighter He will shine
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine upon us until the glory dawns
Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day
O beautiful star of Bethlehem
Shine on

Give us a lamp to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day

O beautiful star of Bethlehem

Shine On
Shine onhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tuo-gesXirw&feature=related

Wise Men Still Seek Him

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in

the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Stand up for Jesus

*****

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the cross;
Lift high His royal banner, it must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished, and Christ is Lord indeed.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the solemn watchword hear;
If while ye sleep He suffers, away with shame and fear;
Where’er ye meet with evil, within you or without,
Charge for the God of battles, and put the foe to rout.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict, in this His glorious day.
Ye that are brave now serve Him against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger, and strength to strength oppose.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you, ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the Gospel armor, each piece put on with prayer;
Where duty calls or danger, be never wanting there.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, each soldier to his post,
Close up the broken column, and shout through all the host:
Make good the loss so heavy, in those that still remain,
And prove to all around you that death itself is gain.

Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle, the next the victor’s song.
To those who vanquish evil a crown of life shall be;
They with the King of Glory shall reign eternally.

*****

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
1and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”

Amen.

Jesus Christ, King of Kings

Invited then uninvited…..

If President Obama fails to intervene to allow controversial evangelist Franklin Graham to lead a National Day of Prayer event Thursday inside the Pentagon, “it will be a slap in the face of all Christians,” Graham said Tuesday.

And invited or not, he’ll stand in front of the Pentagon and pray, Graham said in an interview.

Franklin Graham said the following:

“We’re living in a time where we cannot compromise, we cannot back up, we cannot retreat,” Graham said Wednesday during a live Webcast from the Washington, D.C. offices of the Family Research Council.

“The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is to be preached to the ends of the Earth – that’s what He’s called us to do,” he said.

Graham, the honorary chairman of this year’s National Day of Prayer, made his comments in a sermon to an audience of leaders making final preparations for Thursday’s National Day of Prayer.

“(In the United States) we see everyday our rights being eroded. Just a little at a time, but its happening. Everyday. So let’s preach while we can. Let’s stand up and holler ‘Jesus Christ! King of Kings, Lord of Lords!’to the top of our voice,” the younger Graham said.

“The secularists are going to get ticked off, the news media’s going to hate it. I don’t know, maybe the people in the White House are going to be mad. But you know what, I don’t care. Because God has called us to take the Gospel — His Gospel, the power of God and His Salvation — unto the ends of the Earth.”

He wasn’t going to preach a sermon, just say a prayer for the country.   When Christians pray, they pray in the name of Jesus.  So he has a right to do that.  He stated his opinion about Islam nine years ago.  He has a right to do that.  He has a right to state his opinion about it today..

But that’s okay, he can say a prayer outside the building.  That’s fine.  The government can’t make us pray.  The government can’t keep us from praying.

“Even if President Obama fails to intervene to allow him to lead a National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon Thursday, Franklin Graham will still be there— praying for the U.S. military and his own son who is serving in Afghanistan.”

UPDATE:

The evangelist’s invitation to attend the national prayer day event inside the Defense Department was withdrawn two weeks ago.

But the famed son of Evangelist Billy Graham arrived in the Pentagon parking lot just before 8 a.m., formed a circle with his party of a half dozen people on the sidewalk and prayed for about five minutes.

He Arose


Low in the grave He lay, Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!

Refrain

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed, Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord!

Refrain

Death cannot keep its Prey, Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord!

And that’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night

And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the Lord shone round about them and they were sore afraid

And the angel said unto them. Fear not: for, behold, I bring you  tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you:  Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of heavenly host praising God, and saying:

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke Chapter 2

And that’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

Merry Christmas

One Nation Under God

America was founded on the principles set out in the Bible. It is God who has endowed us with the rights we have, not any man or government.

All states’ Constitutions mention God.

Florida, originally from 1845, contains in its preamble a statement of gratitude to God:“We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits, perfect our government, insure domestic tranquility, maintain public order, and guarantee equal civil and political rights to all, ordain and establish this constitution.”

See all the states here.

I believe that America is a Christian country, and because we are a Christian country, we have respect for other religions and for those with no religion.  I’m sick and tired of hearing about how we are no longer a Christian nation,(or never were), because we are and we better hope and pray we stay that way.

Christ has said “come unto me, all who are weary and heavy-laden.” He stands with his arms outstretched and he continually knocks on the heart’s door that opens only from the inside.  Nobody is required to be a Christian.  It’s an invitation and a privilege.  But that does not mean that we have to become like any other religion or to become as an atheist with no signs of our faith.

We Do Not have to strip evidence of Christianity from our lives and especially now at Christmas time.  Christmas is a Christian holiday, in case that’s not obvious, so anyone who does not want to celebrate it, just don’t. But Christians should be able to celebrate it any way we want to.  I usually remain silent on my faith, but I’m going to stand up for it as it is being threatened at every hand.

So just leave the mangers alone, damn it.  (And the crosses, too.)

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Merry Christmas
